The Robotic City
The Library of Speculations
Seminar Faculty: Winy Maas Adrien Ravon – The Why Factory

In this seminar we develop the Library of Robotic Speculations, imagining the future technologies and how those could change the planet and the way we inhabit our cities.
From smart cities to biotechnologies, how to map the evolution and advances of robotic technologies? How to get an overview of the current and future technological innovations? What are the implications of the robotization on the build environment?
In the best tradition of science fiction, we speculate and develop future scenarios – from utopian to dystopian. We produce future visions exploring what are the pluses and minuses of the robotic city. How does that change the way we work, build and live our cities?
This library of future scenarios will be developed leading to visionary, city-related designs. During the seminar, we’ll develop a collective movie exploring the transformation process of a street and the impacts of robotic technologies on the build environment and the way we inhabit our cities.
